Being cozy is a major part of Scandinavian living. From hygge in Denmark to koselig in Norway through to lagom in Sweden, each country has its own philosophical reason for coziness. Rumpl fits perfectly into that concept and we are so happy to bring them into the Aktiv family.

Here is how it started for Rumpl:

On a surf and ski trip through California, the Rumpl founders were sleeping in a van, several miles up a dirt road near a secret hot spring. They awoke the next morning in subzero temperatures with a car that wouldn’t start. Far outside of cell reception, and confronted with an impossibly long walk into town, they decided to bundle up in their sleeping bags and drink whiskey while they waited for someone else to show up.

Minutes turned to hours, and in that time the conversation took an unexpected turn to the subject of bedding. Cozy and warm in their sleeping bags, the two acknowledged how much better the materials felt and performed than what was on their beds back home. A resolve was made to create a “sleeping bag blanket” and the idea for the first Rumpl product was born.
